Let’s Explore where the American Express Centurion Lounges are located. As many of our Pointsters know, an airport experience gets SO much better when having access to a lounge. From United Polaris Lounges, to American Express’s Centurion Lounges, traveling luxuriously is the way of the Pointster, we all know that! To travel the right way, and more importantly, the most relaxing way, we’re talking about The Centurion Lounges, where our Pointsters can wait for their flight and enjoy it too.
Centurion Lounges are located in airports across the globe, including Dallas (DWF), Hong Kong (HKG), Houston (IAH), Las Vegas (LAS), New York (LGA), Philadelphia (PHL), Miami (MIA), Seattle (SEA), and San Francisco (SFO).
Access to Centurion Lounges is offered as a complimentary benefit of being a Platinum Card Member, alongside being offered to Centurion Members.
Currently the Centurion Lounges do not offer an option for non-members to purchase membership to the Centurion Lounges, making the lounges even more exclusive. However, Platinum Card and Centurion Members may enter with up to two guests at no additional cost. Alongside this, members may purchase a day pass for additional guests as long as the guest is always accompanied by the card member.
American Express’s information on The Centurion Lounge notes that “Guest access is per Card Member, not per Card,” meaning guests must be accompanied by a member at all times while present in the lounge.
To enter an American Express Centurion Lounge, travelers must bring a valid boarding pass showing a confirmed reservation for same-day travel and a valid Card, alongside a government-issued I.D. Acceptable forms of identification include passports, birth certificates, and a valid driver’s license.
Upon providing valid identification, Platinum Card Members and their guest(s) will be admitted, but will not be given access to the lounge more than three hours prior to their flight’s departure.
Benefits of having access to a Centurion Lounge include full access to premium bars, high speed Wi-Fi, a computer and printing services, family rooms, and locally inspired cuisines. Centurion members have the added benefit of a glass of Veuve Champagne for themselves and a guest. In Miami they also have spa services.
However, airport lounges are not the only type of Centurion Lounges. American Express now offers Centurion Suites in sporting venues. This lets our Pointsters get more out of the Centurion experience throughout their travels.
The Centurion Suites are located at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, and at the STAPLES Center in Los Angeles, California. For Pointsters attending a sporting event or a concert in either locations, these Centurion Suites will be the icing on the cake.
The American Express Centurion Lounge will be coming to DEN, JFK, LAX, LHR, and CLT in the future, but for now, you can take a virtual tour of the Miami Centurion Lounge to see how much you’ll love them.
